Tips for Keeping Your Yard Lively During Winter

Chelsea Perry - Friday, December 01, 2017

The weather on the Crystal Coast is cooling off and our mornings and nights now require heavier jackets to keep us warm. With this drop in temperature comes the concern for the appearance of our yards. Sure, the grass may not be as green and the leaves have fallen off of our trees, but there are still ways to make an impact when it comes to curb appeal. Here’s how:

1. Rely on your hardscape to make an impact. Your shrubs and trees may lack color and interest, but you can add that color back through unique lattice features, archways, and sculptures throughout your yard.

2. Fill your summertime containers with wintertime elements. Do you have a wheelbarrow that used to hold petunias but now is sitting vacant in your flower bed? Place a miniature evergreen tree inside of it to bring interest to an otherwise empty container.

3. Use winter greenery to decorate. Dress your front porch with real evergreen garland and create a red berry bouquet for your front door. Use natural elements to add Christmas cheer to your yard!

There is a lot you can do to capitalize on your winter yard situation here in eastern North Carolina. While the bright and green hues may be resting for the winter, you can accentuate your yard in more ways than one.
